Ron’s depth of experience in banking, finance, and community investing has granted him the opportunity to observe, influence and guide a wide range of initiatives focused on expanding economic opportunities within historically underserved communities. Over several decades and within each of the organizations he was affiliated with, doors were opened that facilitated more people of color to enjoy the benefits of the American dream of wealth, home ownership and income appreciation.
As Ron has worked tirelessly throughout his career to increase access to the resources needed to improve communities, he continues to believe that we can all do better if we share our collective wisdom and resources going forward.
